LMG Racing Inc.'s Miss Famous Eagle outran her 17-1 odds to win Saturday's $30,500 Paragon Oaks for distaffers.

Ridden by Jose Amador Alvarez for trainer Mike Joiner and racing on a sloppy and sealed track, Miss Famous Eagle went 400 yards in :19.637 while defeating 4-5 favorite SS Classyjess by a head. The 3-year-old daughter of One Famous Eagle earned a 97 speed index and the $17,080 winner's share of the purse from her first career stakes victory.

Miss Famous Eagle was bred in Oklahoma by Sam W. Green, and the filly was purchased by LMG Racing Inc. for $115,000 at the 2019 Ruidoso Select Yearling Sale. She is out of Miss Southern Dynasty, a homebred daughter of champion Fdd Dynasty who won the 2012 Hialeah Lassie Futurity at Hialeah Park near Miami.

A finalist in this year's All American Oaks and Rainbow Oaks at Ruidoso Downs, Miss Famous Eagle has won two of 14 starts and has banked $104,356, of which $90,033 has been earned from nine races this season.

Macs Lady M ran third and was followed by Preyn Onthe Mountain, Jess A Dashin Angela, Silk And Stilettos, EC Abella, Golly Jess, Jess Eleven Or Seven, Valiant Memorie, and Dashing Coronado.

Also on Saturday, Mario Delgado rode Whirlaway Wagon to a wire-to-wire victory in the 400-yard, $58,675 Texas Classic Juvenile Stakes.

Prepped by James Gonzales III for owner Roberto Chacon, Whirlaway Wagon stopped the timer in :19.822 on a sloppy and sealed track, and his winning margin was a head from 7-2 favorite Miss Ivory Eyes. The bay son of the Mr Jess Perry stallion Whirlaway Red pocketed $26,110 from his fourth win in seven races and second stakes score.

Whirlaway Wagon was bred in Oklahoma by Buckskin EC Inc. A $19,000 purchase at last year's Heritage Place Yearling Sale, the gelding has earned $85,851, and his resume includes a wire-to-wire, one-length victory in the April 17, $100,000 Remington Park Juvenile Stakes (R) for Oklahoma-breds.
